A group, the Student Ambassadors for Positive Impact, SAPI, is insisting that, George O’ben-Etchi, the member representing Akamkpa II State Constituency in the Cross River State House of Assembly, should be allowed to return to the House a third term, “having acknowledged his efforts and support towards student activities and the maintenance of peace in the constituency”.
Kelvin Eyam, leader of the group, in company of Ndoma Vincent Ntui, the Secretary, Agnes Ayamba, Agbor Brian, among others, while addressing a press conference in Calabar, mid-Friday, opined that their decision to support the third term bid of the legislator is hinged on the fact that O’ben-Etchi, “has provided employment, financial support to students of various categories and improved the overall welfare of his constituents”.
The group through her leadership further stated that, “a man whose interest is the interest of the people deserves another term to consolidate and sustain the project he has started”. While fielding questions from a cross section of journalists present at the occasion, Eyam again pointed to the fact that the House member’s experience all this while can be adequately utilised especially in the next administration considered a very fresh one. He solicited the support of all and sundry, especially those in the constituency to throw their weight behind the candidate to reap benefits that are unimaginable.
